Proposals to outsource library services in Croydon and Wandsworth

"TOO cash-strapped to run its libraries itself, Croydon Council is setting about finding outsiders to do the job at reduced price.
Councillor Sara Bashford, cabinet member for culture and sport, announced on Wednesday that subject to cabinet approval on June 13, a "market testing" exercise would be launched in conjunction with Wandsworth to gauge interest in running library services in both boroughs.
The councils will entertain proposals from private companies, social enterprises, trusts and even other local authorities."
